Eta Sigma Phi is the national collegiate honor society for students of Greek and/or Latin. The honorary was founded in 1914 at the University of Chicago and became a national society in 1924.
The purposes of the organization are threefold:
- to develop and promote interest in classical study among the students of colleges and universities;
- to promote closer fraternal relationships among students who are interested in classical study, including inter-campus relationships;
- to engage generally in an effort to stimulate interest in classical study, and in the history, art and literature of ancient Greece and Rome.
